in·ter·sect /ˌintərˈsekt/

"in·ter·sect /ˌintərˈsekt/" includes live performance, video, sound and sculpture. The videos and the live performers will respond to an audio track of spoken words describing the body. These words, both ordinary and vulgar, reflect on semiotic discourse. They signify specific body parts, as we come into contact with them in different contexts. The merging into a single stream of spoken descriptors of the body both reminds us that these are simply words ascribed meaning from language and that the body politic is complex and nuanced in our social spaces. In this way, the piece aims through its combination of video, performance, sound, and sculptural space to reflect back on the modern landscape of personal communication/interaction and how it is modified through technology.
